From Parents

 

‘Helen’s role is invaluable not only to the child but the parents. We had been experiencing huge difficulties in our sons primary schools understanding of his emotional, behavioural and diagnosis of ASD for a long time. Helen came into school and acted as a mediator between parents and school to help show how to manage our sons difficulties in the school environment. Her knowledge is invaluable to all parties involved . Helen has been a saviour to our family as without her involvement, support and guidance our life with a child with ASD would be very different. We cannot state enough how important Helens role is to ALL.’ (parent)

 

“Thank you so much for your help today, It was amazing to finally feel that the school are listening..” (parent)

"We are truly grateful for all your help and support. We both feel we can support A on his journey to secondary school, well equipped with the information needed to maximise the support that should/will be on offer to him.” (Parents of home-schooled child moving back into mainstream education)

 

“We are really grateful for your help and support which has undoubtedly made a huge difference to K’s comfort and confidence at school. She’s also re-engaged in a lot of extra-curricular activities.. and  is generally a much happier and more outgoing child. Thank you so much for helping us see the way forward and making such a positive difference to our family” (parent)

“We are very grateful to you…for the time, help and support you have given us. Thanks once again for your kindness, words of support and belief that for some children there are options other than school and not judging us on our decisions.” (Parent on making a difficult decision to move their child from mainstream school to home education)

 

“Thank you for supporting E. Unlike all the others that have assessed her, you took the time to talk to my daughter and understand her as an individual.” (Parent of home-schooled child)

“Many thanks for the report you completed on J and especially the clear guidance it contains for staff about how to help J manage her anxiety levels at school.” (parent)

 

“Thank you for your email…I’m sure G would be happy to work with you again…you managed to keep his attention and focus for ages so that was lovely to watch him engage with somebody…he felt really positive afterwards.” (Parent of a home-schooled child needing follow-on assessment and support)

“Hi Ian – firstly can I say thank you for providing such a full and considered response to my query, it is very much appreciated. You have provided a great deal of food for thought and I am positive the resources will be of great use to us.” (Parent asking for advice on choice of school)

“If you had not been there to believe and understand the real issues he was facing every day in mainstream I know the ‘dark place’ he was in would only have got deeper.  I could not have got through the last year in his primary without your support and coming in to witness our unbearable situation, attending meetings with the school and myself. To have someone who fully understands ASD and could back up my feelings, to support his needs… If you had not understood O for who he is I hate to think where he would be now.  Yes, we still have a difficult journey ahead, but we can finally dare to imagine. Thank you so much for getting us to here and believing in our son.”
